Institute for the Science of Teaching and Learning

The Institute for the Science of Teaching and Learning is designed as a university-wide initiative to foster interdisciplinary collaboration among researchers at Arizona State University and to provide support for investigators who conduct externally-funded research on learning, the conditions and behaviors that influence it and innovations that can maximize it.

More than a dozen investigators are leading U.S. Department of Education or National Science Foundation-funded projects that directly contribute to our Early Learning, Personalized Digital Learning, and Psychometrics & Learning Analytics Research Initiative Centers. In addition, another dozen affiliates from across the ASU campuses are leading externally-funded projects managed by their colleges that also contribute intellectually to these research initiatives. The majority of these affiliated projects are headed by faculty members in at the Polytechnic School, the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College and the Center for Games and Impact.

As evidenced by our commitment to developing and supporting outstanding research teams across our multiple campuses, ASU today is one of the most exciting places to be in the country for anybody interested in research and innovations that can advance learning in formal and informal environments.

People and projects create impact. At the institute, we strive to reach out and connect with other leading researchers at U.S. and international universities. To date we have research affiliates at more than 10 U.S. institutions (e.g., Columbia, Georgia State, Houston, North Carolina State, Oregon, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Wisconsin, Vanderbilt) and international universities in Australia, Great Britain and Korea. We are eager to develop more connections with colleagues across the global.

We welcome your involvement!
